Use Our Transport
We are organising
optional transport on Friday evening, which will carry you directly
to the Event Centre with the option to return on Sunday. The coaches
from/to Glasgow are now full but if you would still like to make
a booking on the coach from/to Inverness, please choose the link
Update your entry. Details of those who have booked will be
displayed on the website and precise details of the arrangement
will be available by 3rd June. Coach managers
will try to ensure that connections are kept with late-running trains,
coaches and flights, so long as we are made aware that people are
arriving on them.
You cannot carry these canisters on an aircraft. Please contact
Compass Point so that they can bring the right type of gas canister
to the event for you. Contact Rick Houghton at firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone 01253 795597
COACH: If you live in the Glasgow or Inverness area and
in return for free transport would be prepared to 'manage' a coach,
please contact email@example.com.
OUR TRANSPORT FROM GLASGOW
Bus Station Coach Departs on Friday 5th June at 19:00 via
If you will be arriving at the airport some hours before the coach
departs, you could take an airport shuttle bus to Glasgow Bus Station,
spend the day in town and then join our coach at Buchanan Bus Station
rather than the airport. The bus station is situated in Killermont
Street near to Glasgow Queen Street Railway Station and is less
than 15 minutes walk from Glasgow Central Railway Station. Please
note that the coach will not be calling at a railway station. The
coach will be standing at Tour Stance nr 27, sited at the
far end of the bus station opposite the main building. You should
be able to locate Carol Murray our marshal who will be wearing
a bright yellow LAMM bib, a few minutes before the departure time.
Also we expect the coach to be marked with LAMM or Lowe Alpine MM
and it is possible that some information will be provided on the
overhead displays. Please don't make bookings on trains/buses that
arrive at Glasgow later than 18:45.
Airport Coach Departs on Friday 5th June at 19.30
for the Event Centre
Our meeting point will be close to one of
the Airport Information Desks. Look for the desk situated on the
Ground Floor near to Domestic Flight Baggage Reclaim. If you arrive
on an International flight, you will need to proceed to this area
after you have reclaimed your bags. Carol Murray will be
wearing a bright yellow LAMM bib and will arrive with the coach
from Buchanan Bus Station - so don't be concerned if she does not
appear until a few minutes before the coach departure time (or later
if the coach is delayed). Carol will lead you to where coaches are
required to await incoming flights. Please don't make a booking
on planes that arrive at Glasgow Airport later than 19:00.
Do not confuse Glasgow Airport with Prestwick Airport, which is
1 hour to the SW of Glasgow.
IF YOU EXPECT TO MISS THE 19:00 OR 19:30 DEADLINES
please ring Carol Murray on 07805 168546.
7th June, the transport to Glasgow will leave at 13:45 (15
minutes earlier than originally advertised), calling at Glasgow
Airport, Glasgow Central Railway Station and finally if required
at Buchanan Bus Station. On Friday, the coach will drop you at the
"T" junction by the entrance to the Event Centre field.
On the Sunday the coach will park 200M along the road to the east
of the "T" junction near where you collect drinking water.
It is only intended to connect with flights leaving Glasgow Airport
after 19:30. Transport will then call at Glasgow railway
station and Buchanan Bus Station. Please don't book onward transport
from the centre of Glasgow before 19:30.
USE OUR TRANSPORT FROM INVERNESS -
WARNING - FRIDAY PICKUP TIMES HAVE CHANGED
We would thoroughly recommend booking flights or trains to Inverness
as it is much more local to the event than Glasgow. Transport will
be provided on Friday 5th June at 16:45
from the airport and 17:30
at the railway station. We have brought the pickup times
forward as everyone should arrive at Inverness by 17:30 on Friday.
We would suggest that those arriving at the airport at 15:00 and
15:20 wait there for the coach. There will be no coach manager on
the coach as we hope that the procedure will be fairly straightforward.
Those who are waiting at the railway station should be especially
vigilant as the coach driver will expect you to identify the coach
as it arrives.
7th June, the transport to Inverness will leave the Event Centre
at 13:45 (15 minutes earlier than originally advertised).
On Friday, the coach will drop you at the "T" junction
by the entrance to the Event Centre field. On the Sunday the coach
will park 200M along the road to the east of the "T" junction
near where you collect drinking water. It is only intended to connect
with flights leaving from 16:45 onwards. These are EZY156
to Luton at 16:45, BE7326 to London Gatwick at 17:00 and
BE207 to Manchester at 17:05. After calling at the airport,
the coach will call at Inverness railway station approx. 16:15
so please don't book onward transport before 16:30.
DRIVE - SHARE CAR HIRE
We have a special webpage on
the website devoted to helping those who arrive early on the Friday
by plane to be put in touch with others who might like to share
a hire car rather than wait for our coach transport.
WHAT TO DO
IF YOU MISS A COACH
This is not a
disaster as long as you REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR DRIVER'S LICENCE,
A CREDIT CARD IN YOUR OWN NAME AND YOUR PASSPORT! There are
a number of car hire firms situated at Glasgow airport and the booking
offices are all located near our meeting point on the Ground
Floor near to Domestic Flight Baggage Reclaim.
Weekend rates are reasonable. Look out for other LAMMers in the
same predicament so that you can share a car between two teams.
